Richest Nigerians released by Forbes

Forbes has released yet another list revealing 21 paragons of wealthy Nigerians, and guess what, there is no woman in the list, even our dearest Folarunsho Alakija who spent 88 million naira to buy four mercedes Benz G-Wagons for her sons each costing 22 million naira did not make the 21 billionaires in Nigeria.
Though we all know that it is not easy to maintain positions on that list due to the fact there are so  many hustlers in Nigeria of presently, people want to get rich or die trying but regardless of these economic condition and the fast rising population which over 160 million inhabitants, 21 sood  and hs poved with n reasonable doubt to Forbes that they can do best and not just better

Introducing our first three on three on the list, I must really commend these idols for making it thus far. Forbes selected these three icons using the value of shares they have in the quoted companies below, that is the companies listed on the stock exchange
That's our number one, Aliko Dangote
Followed by the number two, Mike Adenuga
And finally the number three, Femi Otedola

While the rest were selected and ranked based on 5 criteria listed below:

  • The values  of shares they have the quoted companies that is, the companies listed on the stock exchange. 
  • The size and market share of their companies
  • The number of companies they own and its assumed value
  • The market value of their company's brand
  • The impact of their companies on the Nigerian economy 
I'm so love with this last criteria because most wealthy Nigerians has failed to realise that when God Bless you, that blessings should be able to reach out to people around you and in that way you keep getting blessed.
Let's see the list Forbes finally came up with below;

1. Alhaji Aliko Dangote – founder of Dangote Group, Richest man in Africa and Richest black man in the world
